June Fourteenth— Flag Day 

"Unfurl the flag! let the winds caress 

And lift it in rippling- loveliness 

Over all the wide west-world we claim 

By cross and sword and in Freedom's name. 

Unfurl the flag"! let it curl and kiss 

The zephyr that faints in the summer bliss; 

It was born in storm, and its glory sprung 

"Where the bolts of battle shrieked and sung. 

God bless the flag! let it float, and fill 

The sky with its beauty; our heartstrings thrill 

To the low, sweet chant of its wind-swept bars 

And the chorus of all its clustered stars."
